So I’m wondering why people would wait 5 days in front of a store to save $200 on a television. At least that’s what the last news report I saw stated as they interviewed people (stupid people) about how long they were waiting and what they expected to get out of it.
Let’s do the math. If you have FIVE whole days to kill meaning 80 hours (120 hours – 40 for sleeping) then why not just go get a freaking temporary job working somewhere for $10 an hour? That would be 80 hours x $10 = $800. In case you are too stupid to do the math, $800 is greater than $200 so waiting in line for 5 days is a fairly stupid thing to do sitting around and doing nothing!
Of course, if the monetary equation weren’t bad enough, dealing with the crowds, lack of parking, being trampled to death, and other mayhem isn’t worth saving $200 but stupid people can’t figure that out.
